DITO close to hitting one million subscribers milestone

14 Jun 2021

DITO Telecommunity’s chief technology officer Rodolfo D Santiago says the start-up will break the one million subscriber barrier ‘soon’ after successfully connecting approximately 890,000 customers to date. In a briefing last Friday (11 June), Santiago confirmed that the third telco would be lighting up commercial services in a further 23 locations over the weekend. ‘Concentration of areas served by DITO continues to be in the Visayas and Mindanao as we started rolling out in those areas, but Metro Manila is fast catching up,’ he is quoted by local press as saying, noting that by the end of this month coverage will extend to approximately ‘150 total cities and municipalities’ as the company looks to achieve its target of securing a 30% share of the market in the long term.

Note: DITO released a subsequent update confirming it had reached the one-million subscribers milestone on 16 June, just three months after it officially launched.
